I've downloaded shn zip files and try to convert using mkw to no avail. The shows I downloaded 1 song file at a time convert with no problem. Is there another step in opening the zip files? A buddy told me I need to use Winzip (purchase price $30.00)Is this true? Is ther another software program I can use to open the zip files? I hate to give Bill Gates more money than he already has.

Hey there,

If I understand you correctly, you _will_ need to unzip the SHN ZIP files before you try converting them to MKW.

Although you pay to register WinZIP (and you don't have to pay Bill Gates, since Microsoft doesn't own it!), the free shareware version, which you can get from www.winzip.com, works just as well, and there are plenty of freeware alternatives too.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Simon.

Thank you so much for the help. I assumed with the pre-fix Win, Gates had control. I don't mind giving someone else a fee. I will attempt your solution. It's great to have people out there willing to assist others. Thanks again.
